Screen/Society--Memory Project--"Reading Hunger": Performance by Four Filmmakers

Performance by Four Filmmakers: "Reading Hunger" / Conception & Direction: Wu Wenguang / Text, documentaries & performers: Zhang Mengqi, Zhang Ping, Liu Xiaolie, Wu Wenguang / Duration: 70 minutes / Production: Caochangdi Workstation // About the performance: Chinese Documentary filmmaker Wu Wenguang launched the Memory Project in 2010 to collect oral histories from survivors of the Great Famine (1958-1961) in rural China. Since then, several young filmmakers have joined the project. They have been to 246 villages in 20 provinces and interviewed more than 1,220 elderly villagers. The Memory Project aims to shine light on one of modern China's most traumatic episodes, the Great Famine of 1958-1961. For this project, the performers took video cameras and went back to their respective villages. They went in search of the old generation that was still living there in dim, stark houses, to uncover the memories hidden deep inside them. For the elderly in the villages, this was the first time anyone had come to ask them to open their memory chests. This is their story. // Presented by Duke University Libraries

SSRI~ Workshop: Introduction to Qualtrics Survey Software

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2016-10-19 18:00
Wed, Oct 19, 2016
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys.

SSRI~ Workshop: Qualitative Data Management Strategies and Techniques

SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
Compared to survey research, data management strategies in qualitative research are often ad-hoc, and produced after the data collection process has been completed. Different qualitative methods produce different types of data and require different analytical approaches, yet there are several strategies worth considering for managing your data and can be planned and deployed prior to commencing data collection in order to facilitate the transition from data collection to data analysis. This workshop will cover a range of qualitative data management strategies in order to help researchers plan for data collection, or to help researchers manage data during or after the collection process. Some time will be given to the role of NVivo software in facilitating data management and preparing for data analysis.

Visualizing Qualitative Data (DVS Workshop Series)

Perkins 217
West Campus

So many of the tools that have been developed for data visualization focus on data that are in spreadsheet format, especially data that are number-heavy.  For qualitative research, numerical data may not be the primary focus, or the numerical data may be difficult to visualize for other reasons.  This workshop will explore some of the complications of trying to visualize qualitative data, walking through examples of different types of qualitative data projects and the visualizations that have been produced from those projects.  The workshop will include recommendations for tools that may be useful, but we will focus more on the process of finding the visual elements of a qualitative data project than on a specific software application.
